Difference between Mixer Grinder and Wet Grinder

The difference between mixer grinder and wet grinder is in the way the contents is ground. In a mixer grinder small stainless steel blades rotate at high speed to pulverize the food items in the jar, usually made of glass or Stainless Steel. In a wet grinder the grinding is done by slow turning stone rollers over a stone base.

In a mixer grinder the high speed stainless steel blades have a direct connection between the motor and the blades. Whereas in a wet grinder the rolling stones are belt driven, that is connected to the motor via a belt.

What is a Wet Grinder

Wet Grinders are a unique Indian product used for making idli dosa batter or Maavu as it is known in South India. The electric Wet Grinder evolved from the manual stone idli dosa batter grinders used in India for over a 1000 years. I may have played a small part in the invention of the electric wet grinder or rather say, the evolution of the manual stone dosa maavu grinder to the electric table top wet grinder of today.
